Hi, i would like to ask your comments about tags (IPTC keywords) in Lightroom CC 1.0 (desktop; not meaning LR Classic CC 7.0), in Lightroom CC iOS and in Lightroom CC Android:
In Lightroom CC iOS and Lightroom CC Android, I can only manually assign tags to one photo at a time. I cannot tag 10 similar photos in one go (as I could do with LR desktop versions). Right or wrong?
Tags manually assigned in Lightroom CC 1.0 (desktop; not Lightroom Classic CC 7.0) or manually assigned in Lightroom on iOS or Android will be written into exported files' IPTC metadata. Right or wrong?
Automatically assigned tags (like "flower" on a flower photo) will never be written into the image metadata; also not when I export the image file. There will not be an IPTC tag "flower". Right or wrong?
Manually assigned tags are not immediately stored in the image file, but …somewhere. When I visit the Lightroom CC 1.0 "Original" folder on my hard disk (not meaning an LR CC 1.0 "folder" in the sense of "album containing sub-albums") and check the images in that hard disk folder without using Lightroom, I will not see the manually or automatically assigned tags from Lightroom. Right or wrong?
Unlike in Lightroom Classic or Lightroom 6 etc., I cannot set Lightroom CC 1.0 or the mobile apps to store tags (and other metadata) right in the image file (or in a sidecar file next to the image). Right or wrong?
From all that my conclusion would be that all my manually assigned metadata are in the hands of Adobe. Should I lose my connection to Adobe, I cannot retrieve metadata such as tags. Before leaving the Lightroom system, I'd need to properly export all my image files. Right or wrong?
Fantastic questions! All of which I too am researching. If only they’d at least respond with “we hear you and are working on this”. No response is dangerous. I teach communications and this is a fantastic example I’m sure I could use in class. Before it becomes a crisis, Adobe has an opportunity to set folks minds at ease.
